Tottenham Hotspur travel to the Emirates Stadium today to take on Arsenal in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side is currently sixth in the table but they are only five points behind the second-placed Gunners with 11 matches played.

In early team news the BBC reports that Tottenham left-back Danny Rose should be available having recovered from a knock he suffered against Aston Villa last week.

Summer signings Heung-Min Son and Clinton N’Jie could both feature having recovered from recent injuries, although the latter in particular is likely to be on the bench at best.

As for Arsenal, they are without a whole host of players including Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck, while first-choice right-back Hector Bellerin also remains out with a groin injury.

In other news, the Daily Mail reports that Tottenham have opened talks regarding a potential move for 16-year-old Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen.

The teenager has been in blistering form for his country during the under-17 World Cup and that form is said to have alerted the interest of Spurs.

With nine goals in the tournament so far, big things are expected of Osimhen and Tottenham representatives are said to have opened talks with his current club Ultimate Strikers Academy regarding a potential move.
